MT-MC: Course Description (21.0 Hours including 4.0 Home Study Hours / 2.10 CEUs)
The MAPS MasterClass seminar is designed for PTs, DCs, MDs, and DOs ONLY (No PTAs, ATCS) with a strong foundation in the Maitland-Australian approach to the management of neuromuskuloskeletal spinal and peripheral conditions who have already completed MT-1, MT-2 and MT-3 or PTs who are current FAAOMPTs. Teaching Faculty are MAPS most senior and experienced clinicians. The seminar is designed to refine and enhance the assessment, thought process, clinical reasoning, and psychomotor skills associated with the Maitland-Australian Approach. The seminar is a mixture of lecture/discussion (15%), skills lab (50%), live patient/mock patient/clinical scenario interactive discussion (35%). Participants will receive 1:1 individual calibration of spinal and peripheral variations in palpation of resistance (R1, R2) and 1:1 feedback on the participants ability to accurately preform and modify Grades I, II, III, IV & V.  Masterclass can be used for COMT re-certification credit.

Course requires the following prerequisites: MT-1, MT-2, MT-3 or FAAOMPT (any discipline).

MT-MC: Course Objectives
  • Following specific instruction and individual calibration provided by the Instructor/(s), demonstrate accurate R1 and R2 aspects of resistance.  Will be able to demonstrate at least one spinal and one peripheral example.
  • Following specific instruction and individual calibration provided by the Instructor/(s), demonstrate accurate Grade I, II, III, and IV passive movements using accessory & physiological examination/treatment techniques. Will be able to demonstrate at least one spinal and one peripheral example.
  • Integrate the course materials to select, properly apply, and defend a selection of modifications to grades of passive movement to spinal and peripheral regions. Modifications include: rhythm, speed, “broken rhythm”, and stationary holds. Will be able to demonstrate at least one example.
  • Integrate the course materials to select, properly apply, and defend a selection of modifications to grades of passive movement to spinal and peripheral regions. Modifications include: compression, distraction, medial, lateral, caudal and cranial glides variations to the foundational passive techniques.  Will be able to demonstrate at least one example.
  • Integrate the course materials to select, properly apply, and defend a selection of modifications to positions in which passive mobilization is applied using the concept of combined movements per Brian Edwards. Will be able to demonstrate at least one example.
  • Integrate the course materials to select, properly apply, and defend a variety of relocation procedures used in the management of common joint dislocations. Demonstrate at least one example.
  • Through the use of Live Patients and/or detailed theoretical case scenarios gain greater insight into the processes of the Subjective and Objective examinations. Actively participate in subjective questioning of a “live” patient. Recommend appropriate treatment and reassessment. Evaluate the effect of select interventions. Demonstrate competency by completion of “Overnight Sheets”.
